Elected an RA in 2010, Mali Morris is known for her abstract paintings that have complex inner rhythms of colour and form. ‘How colour operates is always surprising,’ she says, ‘it makes a luminosity that opens up space in a painting. If you get things right, it can transform flat, inert canvas and pigment into something that is constantly alive and shifting, a world inside a world. Working on this new print, Drift, with Other Criteria was an education and a pleasure. I discovered just how different making a print is from painting. It was like turning everything inside out. And it's given me some new directions to try out back in my own studio'

An intimate family portrait of the film director John Boorman by one who should know him best - his daughter Katrine. Now over 80 years old, the director of Hell in the Pacific, Excalibur, Deliverance and The Emerald Forest is one of the last great mavericks. His daughter, who previously had never held a camera, spent four years filming her father who, during the process, found it impossible to resist taking control and offering her a crash course in filmmaking.
Vulnerable, cross, funny, wild and wise, Boorman chronicles his adventures in Hollywood, but also talks with great honesty about his childhood, his marriages, his passion for nature, his need for danger and why film is the only thing he ever truly loved. Though the film is also a portrait of one of the most influential British filmmakers of the last 40 years, most of all it is a story of a father and daughter finding their way back to each other through the language of film. Watch the documentary on BBC iPlayer until Sunday 26th January 2014.

For his first show in Italy, John Isaacs is presenting a single new work in the main room of the gallery: a large sculpture, made with Carrara marble, whose traditional technique calls to mind a famous artwork from the past. It is a very striking physical presence that summons up varied insights and emotions, riveting viewers with the intrinsic beauty of its material and the perfection of its form.
“And so that sculpted piece of mountain becomes a piece of soul, telling us something about how we long for life to continue, about how we can invent it as a work of art, about how useless art is if it’s only about itself and cannot turn marble into flesh, about how life is a dream to be dreamed both in light and in darkness, and about how art can reveal it, even by covering it with a veil.” This is how Didi Bozzini describes it to us in the catalogue.
In this exhibition, Isaacs looks to the past through an art-historical citation that immediately invites new interpretations, new ideas about art, beauty, and life. Pathos and wonder once again flow from the work, in a more sophisticated and subtle way compared to the more caustic pieces of previous years. “Form and content are completely linked. Sculpture, if it is anything, is the spatial relationship of the human body to its surroundings. The act of inhabiting space is itself a form of communication with the environment one is in – it’s not possible for me to separate one from the other,” Isaacs says.
An eclectic artist, John Isaacs has been working for over fifteen years with a wide range of materials – wax, fabric, bronze, neon, ceramics, painting, collage, photography – which he uses to explore the complexity of inhabiting the modern world, the paradoxes of everyday life, the identity of man. His often grotesque, yet uttering fascinating and technically flawless sculptures are a critique of our society, with its waste and extravagance, its consumerism, its pollution. A new book will be released in connection with the exhibition: John Isaacs - The Architecture of Empathy, with texts by Didi Bozzini and Massimo Minini.
